New Book and Magazine Reviews

Just got done posting a couple of reviews to my Knitting News Cast site. The first one is a book by Donna Druchunas called Arctic Lace: Knitting Projects and Stories Inspired by Alaska's Native Knitters. I met Donna on my KnitDesign group. She has been doing a lot of teaching this fall and is teaching next year at TNNA and the Mile High Lace Knitting Conference in Denver. I wish I could get to one of her classes. The lace in the book is so lovely. This is a technique I really want to learn now. Read the review of Arctic Lace.

The other review is on Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts magazine. It is a special issue publication. There are some great patterns as well as gift ideas. I want to knit the sachet trio and bag by Leigh Radford on page 18. They would be a quick knit and since my arm gets tired quickly now, I need to focus on small projects. Read the review of Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts magazine.

I also got some yarn from Liisu Yarns. These are some wonderful hand painted yarns. I plan on knitting up some swatches this weekend so I can do a review. But I can tell already that I'm going to love knitting with this yarn so my arm better not start acting up!!! Check out the Knitting News Cast website later on this weekend for the review.
